New Network Toy
Three years ago we got what I thought was the coolest copier ever - at the time. It was a new all digital Kyocera Mita Copier/Printer. I was impressed. Seriously, it was the first time I had seen such fine copy/print quality come from any device. I was blown away. But it been three years ago means that its about time that our leased on those devices expired. Though I’ve been trying to find a solution that would be worthwhile to get, I didn’t really find one that was really cool. Xerox had a unit, the m20i, that’s basically what we currently had - the KM 1810. Though apparently Xerox does have something else that’s pretty nifty.
Either way, our current Kyocera provider gave us an offer we couldn’t refuse - mostly because they had a way to take care of some unexpected leasing fees. In the end, we’re currently testing the KM-1610. With network faxing and printer, it’s truly an all-in-one deal! I’m still trying to get all the kinks figured out in the drivers and software that let people scan to network folders and have faxes received on the computer as well. But it looks promising. It’s certainly very simple though. When I say simple, I mean that you set up both ends independently, and just hope and pray that when you scan or fax, that both sides will find each other and work. I’m just so used to going through handshaking to make sure you have your setups done right.
Hopefully, this little toy will make us a little more productive.
